New Prince Fielder Cooking Show, “Fielder’s Choice,” Is Basically Just Prince Fielder Eating Delicious Food (Video)
Last August the baseball world was saddened when Prince Fielder announced his early retirement from baseball as the result of recurring neck injuries. However, so far the former slugger appears to be acclimating just fine to his post-baseball life.
A few weeks ago Fielder announced that he and his wife, Chanel Fielder, would be hosting a new cooking show called Fielder’s Choice.
“I have a food show that’s going to be streaming on Netflix and Hulu,” Fielder told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick. “It’s coming out around the beginning of spring training in March, I believe. It’s not just baseball people. It’s a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the ‘Fielder’s choice.’ It’s good TV.”
On Monday Prince tweeted out the first teaser trailer for the new show. There are a few shots of chefs preparing dishes, and there’s one of Prince sitting at a table with fellow big-boned baseball player C.C. Sabathia. But it’s mostly just Prince eating.
Take a look:
If the show seems kind of like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives only with fancier restaurants, there’s a good reason for that. Fielder basically told Crasnick that his show was inspired by his family’s efforts to retrace the footsteps of Guy Fieri.
“When I was playing, my wife and kids would go on the road with me, and we would go to different lunch spots that we saw on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” Fielder explained. “She would look something up on the Internet and find the best restaurants and these little sandwich and taco spots, and we would go there.”
There’s still no word yet on an exact premiere date for Fielder’s Chocie. But it should be soon, so keep checking the “Recently Added” section on Netflix and Hulu.
